If I was to see things my way, I'd allow on site parking, there appeared to be plenty of grass with nothing on it apart from people milling around. This would have been used for parking at Waddington, Leuchars and Cosford. I assume Cosford still have on site parking? I was last their in 2015. I couldn't help thinking that more space could have been utilised also, the dilapidated state of much of the infrastructure gave the whole event a run down feel. You would scarcely have thought that this was an active RAF Air Base. Most importantly apart from the need to beef up the flying and static, the RIAT volunteers at this event, they seem far more given to this creeping attitude of trying to treat everyone as I if they're six years old. One lady in a bright red baseball cap, fleece with and all the gear, on duty at the Lincolnshire Showground, gushed at me as though I were a child, or simple, "Look at this lovely weather, wouldn't it be lovely if the planes were flying now!' I politely ignored her with a half smile. The next was a bloke about my age and girth stood at the entrance by the Hangars constantly waving a large red foam hand and trying to get the attention of everyone regardless walking through the gate, I said to him 'doesn't your arm get sore doing that?' he said no, cheerfully but ever so slightly defensively and carried on, so did I. I'm sorry but it is this very misplaced nonsense which I actually find depressing. Being at Scampton kept reminding me of what kind of event this would have been if organised by the RAF, say a quarter of a century or more ago. Personnel in best blues everywhere, Hangars, at least two, opened up, one the Exhibition Hall, the other Bandstand and refreshments. And of course a far more substantial static and flying line up. Flying probably not finishing until about 18.00hrs. This CBBC/CITV approach toward the punters has got to stop.
